The Tennessean announced its annual list of Top Workplaces and ranked IQTalent, an on-demand talent acquisition and recruitment technology firm, second among all middle Tennessee workplaces in the mid-size (125–399 employees) category.

Winners were determined by an anonymous 24-question survey with employee feedback serving as the sole determinant of list ranking. The survey measured fifteen culture drivers critical to any organization’s success, including alignment, execution, leadership, and connection. 1,750 companies were invited to apply for a position on the 2022 Top Workplaces list, and nearly 20,000 employees across the region responded to the survey.

“While we have remote employees across numerous states, Nashville serves as our global headquarters, with more than 200 team members working in the Nashville area. We’re honored to be named one of the region’s top workplaces. We value our employees and work to provide a workplace and culture that gives them superior work-life flexibility.”

– David Windley, President of IQTalent

IQTalent offers a flexible work environment where employees can choose where and when to work. The company provides competitive benefits and a strong culture of professional development and career growth.

In addition to supporting its employees, IQTalent is dedicated to the Nashville community. An employee-driven community outreach group selects a local non-profit organization to receive a quarterly donation from the firm. Team members are encouraged to get involved with charitable organizations at a hands-on level, volunteering their time and talent to numerous local charities. Over the last five years, IQTalent employees and donations have reached nearly 3 dozen different local groups.

2022 marks the second year in a row IQTalent was recognized as a Top Workplace. For a complete list of honorees, visit The Tennessean.
